The Road To God Knows Where is a breakthrough, iconoclastic film from Alan Gilsenan and remains a memorable zeitgeist movie of Ireland in a transformational decade. If the 1980's was a period of social regression, emigration economic and political crisis, it was also the harbinger of seismic cultural shifts that dynamically connected Irish people at home and away. Road captures this shock-wave spirit in its chaotic ensemble of testimony, starkvisual imagery and interesting sound. The film is infused with the idea that Ireland was on the move, on a journey, literally and figuratively. This bilingual edition combines the text of Alan Gilsenan's screenplay and his own reflective essay on the film. It is generously illustrated and includes critical essays by Harvey O'Brien and Ruth Barton.
